Flood Watch

Team Name: 
On Earth

We are On Earth.

We want to help family, government, organisation and individual to plan for flooding emergencies, better prepared to reduce the damage of flood and save lives. We built a real time flood warning app, that puts relevant and easy to understand information into the hand of the user. Our Flood Watch app shows the real time flood warning on a map overlay, that individuals can timely assess danger and responses to flooding disaster.

The 'SizzleRig' project involves analysis of bushfire data from national, state and territory governments. With machine learning tools we have developed a system for rating the threat of bushfire for any location in Australia that includes historical and real-time data from CSIRO's Sentinel HotSpots satellite programme and our beloved ACT Fire Feed.

Team Name: 
CrashHackers

We are using the ACT cyclist crash data (from 2012). We have developed an iOS app that you strap to your handlebar, and it will evaluate the risk of the area in which the cyclist is riding. It will also show the primary cause of the crashes to help the rider avoid accidents.
